Here's to Handy Andy: Headboard Bench
Use baby's crib to make a bench. Great idea to repurpose a sentimental item. I might have to actually try this one day. I was always going to keep my son's crib on the off chance that he might want to use it himself one day, but seeing as though they are banning all drop side cribs I might have to rethink that!
